The three dots tattoo is a common prison tattoo that represents “mi vida loca,” or “my crazy life.” It’s not associated with any particular gang, but with the gang lifestyle itself.
These dots differ greatly from the previous tattoo – five dots represents time done in prison. This prison gang has a variety of tattoos to look out for, ranging from ‘AB’ to Nazi symbols like a swastika or SS bolts.
Norteno tattoos represent the Nuestra Familia gang, which is associated with Hispanic gangs in Northern California. Particularly found in Russian prisons, chest tattoos symbolize a ‘Prince of Thieves.’ This is the highest rank a Russian convict can achieve, and are generally worn by higher-ups in the mob.
These letters stand for ‘Evil, Wicked, Mean, Nasty.’ Having no particular affiliation with any gang, they simply represent the general disposition of some prison inmates.
The One Direction tattoo collection is ever-growing (well, except for Niall Horan!), and fans most often want to know the meaning behind all the inky artwork.


In the new issue of Teen Vogue, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson shed a little bit of light on why they love to get tattoos.
Also known as the quincunx, the four dots on the outside represent four walls, with the fifth on the inside representing the prisoner. Typically these tattoos can be found anywhere on the body, but are most often found in highly visible places like the face, hands or neck.
Their tattoos include the word Norteno, Nuestra Familia, a sombrero symbol, the letter N or the number 14, symbolizing the 14th letter of the alphabet (yup – the letter N).
Russian prisons have a unique and intricate history of prison tattoos, each with their own unique meaning. This applies to gambling games both within prison and without; it can also represent a person who generally views life as a gamble. Those serving a longer sentence might get this tattoo done on their wrist, with watch straps and all, much like a real watch.


Often found on the knuckles, the tattoo symbolizes a willingness to go to prison for your crew or gang. Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik tell Teen Vogue why they get so many tattoos and what they mean. The three dot tattoo is often created using a stick-and-poke method, requiring very rudimentary tools.
Diamonds are reserved for stoolpigeons and informants – if the cards have this deck, then it was likely applied with force.
